(Lamb puppet on stage)(reading a Bible) Lamb: Psalm 100: Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.
Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs.
Know that the lord is God. It is he who made us, and we are his;
we are his people, the sheep of his pasture. ( pause looks to heaven) (sound happy) I am a sheep of His pasture
I like that! Enter his gates with thanksgiving.............
(Eagle enters and interrupts) Eagle: Hey Miss Lamb. what are you reading?
Lamb: I'm reading Psalms 100 so I can understand the Farmers' Thanksgiving Celebration.
Eagle: What is a Thanksgiving?
Lamb: Well they all get together and cook a big turkey,
then they eat so much they look like pigs, then they take a nap.
Eagle: So that's why everybody was in the woods shooting turkeys
Lamb: Yeah, but some people buy their turkey at the store.
Eagle: Sure am glad I'm not a turkey!!!
Lamb: Let's not talk about that, remember I'm a Lamb!!!!
They eat us too!!!
Eagle: So what does that book have to do with Thanksgiving?
Lamb: It's the Bible, The Word of God. Written by The Creator.
I was reading Psalm 100. But in Ephesians 5:20 it tells us how to give thanks. Giving thanks always for all things unto God.
Eagle: So every time I catch a little field mouse and I fly
away with it I should be thanking God?
Lamb: That's right.
Eagle: Do you think the humans know this?
Lamb: Some of them do. The world would be a much nicer place
if they all did.
Eagle: Well, I'll thank God from now on. And I 'm gonna thank
him right now that I wasn't born a Turkey!!!!
Lamb: And I'm gonna thank him that Thanksgiving dinner isn't
What do you say we go peek in the window to see if they are all sleeping yet.
Eagle: Only if you'll keep that dog away from me. He nearly got
me last time I went down there.
(Exiting Stage) Lamb:(Laughing) He must have thought you were a turkey!!!
Eagle: He thought I was his lunch!
